    How to create own ID numbers

    Asked by RFRoad on August 06, 2015 at 03:42 PM

    Hi,

    I would like to create my own ID numbers - like ID 00000 / ID 00001 etc. for the submissions. As I learned, submissions are automatically numbered with an ID, but I'd like to have a better overview and submission date will not be enough, especially as I want to analyse the data.

    Thanks & regards

    RFRoad

    Hi,

    The "Unique ID" widget sounds like it would be exactly what you are looking for:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/autoincrement

    This will allow you to add an automatically incrementing hidden ID field to your form.  You can set the starting index and thing of that nature.

    If this is not what you were looking for, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can find.
